Rieu's translation of the Iliad was published four years years after his Odyssey; both were cornerstones of his renowned Penguin Classics series. This is not a new translation but a thorough revision taking into account much recent scholarship. Jones adds a new Introduction and much critical apparatus. A bright, crisp copy. VERY SCARCE.
